[L. Ron Hubbard]

One of this century’s most influential figures and known to millions as the founder of the Scientology religion

e has rightly been called one of the most important figures of the 20th century—and there is hardly any aspect of life where the value of L. Ron Hubbard’s humanitarian contributions has not been felt.

     Most broadly known as an author, his books have sold more than 120 million copies.

     The most far-reaching of Mr. Hubbard’s humanitarian efforts are embodied in Dianetics and Scientology; today, millions of people in more than 130 countries consider his works the spiritual cornerstone of their lives.

     His drug rehabilitation methods are used today in 39 countries the world over, with more than 140,000 people freed from the harmful effects of drugs and toxins.

     His breakthroughs in the field of education have been in use around the globe for 30 years, and have helped bring learning and literacy to millions of children and adults.

     Meanwhile, his non-religious moral code, The Way to Happiness, has reached some 60 million people and is required reading in numerous police departments, schools and several branches of the military around the world.

     He has been recognized by scores of governments, universities and officials—most recently including the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, which honoured L. Ron Hubbard as a “humanitarian and seafarer,” and the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People, which bestowed upon Mr. Hubbard the prestigious Doctor W.E.B. Du Bois Outstanding Leadership Award, praising him as “a true humanitarian who has forwarded literacy, education and civilization.”

     L. Ron Hubbard defies easy classification. He certainly does not fit popular misconceptions of “religious founder,” being neither aloof nor a merely contemplative figure. His greatest achievements are his discoveries about man’s mind and soul. That legacy is measured by people on all continents who have realized their potential through the use of his breakthroughs and now lead happier and more successful lives—and who today consider they have no greater friend than L. Ron Hubbard.
